Chief Assistant of the Central Region Operations Room, Ibrahim Bait Al-Mal, has rebutted the news spread on the social media lately that claimed the Room is mobilizing forces to go after the IS/Daesh militias in their stronghold in Sirte.

Bait Al-Mal reaffirmed, in a presser Saturday, that moving forces toward Sirte and declaring war in there, needs an order by the General Staff because it cannot be a matter of improvising by the forces in control of the central region.

“The brigades in Abu Grein and Al-Saddada checkpoints are there to secure the citizens from any kidnap and murder assaults by the IS/Daesh militants.” Explained Bait Al-Mal.

Previously, The Central Region Operations Room had given orders for Al-Krareem, 60, Al-Saddada, and Abu Grein checkpoints to close since last Wednesday until further notice.
